What is Assurans 20mg?
Assurans 20 mg is a medication used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), a condition that causes high blood pressure in the arteries that supply blood to the lungs. It contains sildenafil citrate, which is also the active ingredient in the popular erectile dysfunction medication, Viagra. It works by relaxing the blood vessels in the lungs, improving blood flow, and reducing high blood pressure.
How does it work?
It works by inhibiting the enzyme phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5), which is responsible for breaking down cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), a chemical that promotes the relaxation of smooth muscle cells in the blood vessels. By inhibiting PDE5, Assurans 20mg increases the levels of cGMP in the blood vessels, causing them to relax and widen, thereby improving blood flow and reducing high blood pressure.
Assurans 20 mg is primarily used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), a condition that causes high blood pressure in the arteries that supply blood to the lungs. It can also improve exercise capacity in both men and women.
Assurans 20mg is available in tablet form, and the recommended dose is one tablet taken orally three times a day, with or without food. The tablets should be taken at least four to six hours apart. The dosage may be adjusted based on individual response and tolerance, as determined by a healthcare professional.
Common side effects of Assurans may include headache, flushing, indigestion, nasal congestion, dizziness, and blurred vision. Rare but serious side effects may include sudden vision loss, hearing loss, chest pain, and an erection that lasts for more than four hours (priapism).
This medicine should not be used by individuals who are allergic to sildenafil or any of the other ingredients in the medication. It should also not be taken in combination with nitrates, such as nitroglycerin, as this can cause a sudden and potentially life-threatening drop in blood pressure. Patients with a history of heart, liver, or kidney disease should consult with a healthcare professional before taking Assurans 20mg.
